    Along with the image of Cliff - the little chap with the gun who became Stereolab’s semi-official mascot - Emperor Tomato Ketchup is probably the thing that defines the band in the popular consciousness. A critical success upon impact, the 1996 record ended up in many ‘best of the decade’ lists a few years later - not bad when you consider the competition. If you took a straw poll among fans of Stereolab as to what their best album was there’s a good chance that Emperor Tomato Ketchup would come out on top.

    Of course the main reason that Emperor Tomato Ketchup remains so beloved is that it’s full of fantastic tracks. Stereolab were a singular band, the sort who made music only they could make. Any other group trying to blend influences from Krautrock, grunge, bossa-nova, mid-Century French chansons and whatever else they fancied at the time would have fallen flat on their face, but Tim Gane and Laetitia Sadier’s gang make it sound like the most natural thing in the world. As such, Emperor Tomato Ketchup acts as a missing link between the pioneering work of Can and Neu! and the experimental gains groups like Animal Collective would make a few years down the line.

    Duophonic and Warp are currently issuing extended sets of several of Stereolab’s studio full-lengths. They’ve done another fine job with the expanded edition of Emperor Tomato Ketchup - along with the original thirteen tunes we are also treated to a plethora of demos here as well as bonus cut ‘Old Lungs’ and the original mixes of ‘Noise Of Carpet’ and ‘Percolator’. As with all of the other expanded editions in the series, Emperor Tomato Ketchup has been remastered from the original tapes. A poster, Tim Gane’s liner notes and clear vinyl pressings are in store for those who purchase the LP version.

    Stereolab’s seminal fourth album Emperor Tomato Ketchup is given a fittingly grand reissue by Duophonic and Warp.

    2019 is proving to be a banner year for fans of Stereolab. After May saw bumper reissues of both Mars Audiac Quintet and Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements, three more of the seminal post-rock group’s albums have now been given the same treatment courtesy of Duophonic/Warp. Among their number is Stereolab’s fifth LP Dots And Loops.

    In a way, it’s apt that Dots And Loops has lived on in the cultural memory on account of ‘Parsec’ being used in an advert for Volkswagen Beetles. This album contains some of Stereolab’s most precision-engineered music - a result, perhaps, of the contributions Mouse On Mars’ Jan St. Werner made to the record. Though there are still instances where Stereolab allow their hypnagogic blend of Krautrock, ye-ye and bossa nova to drift into the ether, generally the instrumentals here are bolted together more tightly than they were on Dots And Loops’ predecessor Emperor Tomato Ketchup. This allowed the band to incorporate dance music influences more readily than they had previously - breakbeats crop up on several tracks here while closer ‘Contronatura’ approaches disco.

    Much like the recent editions of Mars Audiac Quintet and Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements, this new pressing of Dots And Loops comes complete with a great deal of bonus material. Instrumentals of several cuts appear as additional tracks - a real treat for those of us who love to marvel at the richness of Stereolab’s arrangements. We also get the Japanese bonus track ‘Diagonals Bode Drums’, a few demos and an 808-workout entitled ‘Bonus Beats’. A poster and liner notes from band leader Tim Gane flesh out the vinyl pressing.

    Duophonic and Warp delight fans of Stereolab once more by re-pressing the group’s 1997 album Dots And Loops.
